Love this restaurant. I have visited several times & never had a bad meal. The lobster is always great, as are the scallops & desserts. Really friendly & attentive staff. I would recommend this restaurant for seafood lovers. A great location with lovely views too.

I don't recall dogs in the restaurant itself. However there is an outside terrace (weather permitting) where you could sit with a dog.
